AZ Alkmaar signed Graziano Pelle from Lecce to five-year contract on Tuesday.
NOS news reported that Alkmaar paid Lecce EUR 6 million (US$8.2 million) for the 22-year-old striker, who plays on Italy's Olympic soccer team.
Alkmaar finished third in the Dutch league last season despite leading the standings with one round remaining. It also lost the Dutch Cup final to Ajax on penalty kicks.
